Premarin is the brand name for an estrogen medication that consists of conjugated estrogens isolated from the urine of pregnant mares (pregnant mares' urine PMU). It is manufactured by Wyeth (now a part of Pfizer), and was first marketed in 1941 and 1942 in Canada and the United States, respectively, for the treatment of menopausal symptoms. - Wikipedia


Looks like it’s more than Premarin tablets Pfizer are expecting women (and in some cases men) to swallow. Check this nonsense out. And the picture filed with it is even worse. They have pregnant mares outside grazing in high grass. But if you look closely you can see a foal too which means these horses have just given birth that’s why they are not “online”. We are talking about the “pee line”.

The Manitoba Cooperator reports:

An expected increase in contracted volumes of pregnant mare urine over the next two years is a small bit of good news for Manitoba’s long-beleaguered PMU industry.

Pfizer Canada says it will increase the amount of PMU collected from ranches in Manitoba and Saskatchewan during 2016 and 2017.

Pfizer uses estrogen from PMU to manufacture Premarin used for hormone replacement therapy in post-menopausal women.

Industry officials cautioned the announced increase in volume will probably not have a major impact on PMU production.

“From our perspective, it’s not going to be anything of any significance,” said Norm Luba, executive director of the North American Equine Ranching Information Council, a non-profit association in Louisville, Kentucky representing PMU ranchers.

“It will be a small increase over the current amount that we contract,” was all Christina Antoniou, corporate affairs manager for Pfizer Canada in Montreal, would say in an email message to the Manitoba Co-operator. “We are currently in the process of contracting for 2016-17 and therefore cannot provide any further details.”

Antoniou indicated a recent improvement in Premarin sales is responsible for the increase.

These people are unbelievable. Literally. Pfizer is making more money than ever off the Premarin family of drugs. Even with price increases there is no way so few a number could possibly supply all the pregnant mare’s urine they need. Who are they kidding? Still, it is puzzle. What are they up to? We’ll let you know when we know.

There are some well informed comments to this article so Pfizer & Co are fooling no one.

Ty Savoy quotes this:

‘In fact if one person is unkind to an animal it is considered cruelty, but where a lot of people are unkind to a lot of animals, especially in the name of commerce, the cruelty is condoned and, once large sums of money are at stake, will be defended to the last by otherwise intelligent people.’
